The Game

Duckside of the Moon is a survival game about Doug, a talented duck astronaut, who gets sent up into space for a research expedition.

On his journey, he gets sucked into a wormhole, and he is transported to a mysterious galaxy. His ship has reset, and he's stuck.

This brave duck must find resources to improve his gear and fix his spaceship, so that he can return home to his friends and family. While doing this, he must overcome dangerous environments as he realizes that he might not be the only one up here...

custom keybinds would be nice. it's really hard to play if you're used to different controls from other games for over 20 years now


Honestly super cool. Brings me Subnautica and Slime Rancher vibes, two of my most favourite games ever!

The game has delivered on the potential it showed earlier this year, it's nice going through this game and I wish there was more content to go through, there are some minor things that could have used a bit more polish but overall your art and UI is pleasant and your gameloop works greatly. Would have liked some side objective such as collecting rubber duckies that are spread all over the map but your core isn't lacking so good job you all!

Just played through the game and I'm very impressed!

The game feels great, the UI is really nice and clean, the progression makes sense with no obvious weaknesses.
I had a lot of fun.

Definitely my favorite of the bunch <3
